Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 15-21, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Feb. 15-21, 2012
This Week: Happy, happy birthday to my beautiful granddaughter Morgan Guzzardo, who turns 3 years old Thursday, Feb. 16. Your presence here on Earth has blessed the hearts of everyone you touch. The new moon in Pisces Feb. 21 is a time to be cautious of. Try not to lose yourself in this dark period where no structure or boundaries appear to be present. This only lasts a couple of days. Be cautious not to activate a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Focus is on romantic aspects at this time. There appears to be a “clearing of the air” that has the ability to correct old, long-standing problems. Midweek invites a healing energy that should be taken advantage of. Large gatherings provide networking for future projects and career goals. Planetary aspects are favorable for growth and development. Strike while the iron’s hot.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Romance has you pulled in two different directions this week. The feeling of “having to choose” is difficult and stressful. Concentrate on your career, and try not to let this get the better of you. By week’s end, you will know which way to go. The behavior of others will make that clear for you. Take time out for friends and family. You need a little humor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A lucky break is coming your way at this time. This is the direct result of your past efforts and energy. Make sure you are celebrating this newfound direction. Your loved ones are in full support of your growth and development. A new addition may be arriving in the family. A child or pet will brighten your day.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — If you feel as though the walls are closing in on you, you may be absolutely right. This is a good time to make all of the wrongs right from your past, even if you don’t feel like you need to. Hiding your head in the sand will not help matters any, it will only make things worse in the long run. Legal matters will be addressed shortly.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Gatherings with friends and family will brighten this week’s energy. Brainstorming with those of like mind will sharpen up your creative skills and start you in a new direction. This winter has been hard on all of us, but as of late, you’ve been feeling the stagnation drastically. This week provides the major turning you’ve been looking for.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your intuition is right on target. Take advantage of this new burst of energy and productive influences. New people and business opportunities are arriving. Present yourself in the best possible light. All eyes are on you. A small gathering brings to light hidden information that needs to be addressed.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The dynamite blast has removed a gigantic, long-standing wall in front of your eyes. Now, all you have to do is dust yourself off and trust that no aftershocks or boulders will fall on you this week. You have wonderful projects ahead of you that will fill you with love and light. New friends and surroundings provide just that. Old relationships are back on track as well. It’s good to be home.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Finances are a major issue. Respecting money is not the same as worshiping it. Money is a simple exchange of energy, like the air that we breathe: there is plenty of it to go around, and it will not buy you happiness. That needs to come from within. Keep this in mind, and move forward with a positive, healthy attitude toward it. All is well that ends well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are in the right place at the right time to receive an award or a bonus. Someone is looking out for you behind the scenes and is “putting your name out there” for an achievement that you deserve. Your personal appearance should be a priority. Put your best foot forward. All eyes are on you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You can finally take a rest from the hectic schedule you’ve been keeping as of late. Now, it’s time to touch base with your inner self and see exactly what you need to do to improve your emotional state. Changes with your intake of junk food, alcohol or smoke will definitely improve your energy levels. Someone is willing to meet you halfway, if you are willing to forgive.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Large gatherings or impromptu affairs bring plenty of fun and laughter this week. You’ve been feeling like a bit of a grump or an emotional “train wreck,” and like magic, this begins to disappear. Put yourself out there and allow others to “love you up” a bit. You won’t be disappointed.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Travel plans are in your best interest now. No matter how difficult it may seem to get away at this point, it is crucial. You have been running on fumes for way too long, and it’s time for a fresh perspective on life. Midweek brings the perfect solution to this element. Go for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Stay in the here and now, and do not allow the past to affect a blessing in your current lifestyle. You have a diamond in the rough, all you need to do now is polish it and nurture it. You will be amazed at how brightly this will shine for you if you allow it to. A positive breakthrough with career is on the table shortly. Go for it.
